NUGEN Audio Q&A with Acclaimed Record Producer, Music Director and Music Supervisor

Q: Tell us a little bit about yourself.

A: I’m originally from Ohio, where I owned a commercial room 50 miles south of Cleveland for nearly 20 years, but I’ve been in New York for over a decade now. I grew up playing piano. I had a piano teacher who was also a recording artist and he always brought me into sessions, and I was lucky enough to be working professionally in high school. I really cut my teeth in studios at that time, orchestrating, arranging and playing. Ultimately, I found my home in the theater – as a music director. I put myself through college doing that, and I continue to do it to this day. I also wear many other hats and seem to continually add even more!

NUGEN Delivers Deeper Workflow Control for Producer Mixer Alvin Wee Posted: 20/11/2019
NUGEN Delivers Deeper Workflow Control for Producer Mixer Alvin Wee

For as long as he could remember, Producer/mixer Alvin Wee loved music and film; and he was fortunate enough to cut his teeth working with composers and record producers in Los Angeles on film projects such as Kung Fu PandaKingsman and Eddie the Eagle. Having such a strong background in the industry, Wee takes pride in knowing that when someone hands a project off to him, it will be done correctly, and well. In order to achieve those results, Wee relies on NUGEN Audio’s Producer bundle and Halo Upmix solutions.

 

Wee’s introduction to NUGEN began as it often does, by word of mouth. “I was talking with industry friends and colleagues. I mentioned that I was looking for a specific product for a project I was working on, and one of them recommended NUGEN,” he says. “Then, I was at a GRAMMY® party and an engineer who is a monster in the business told me that NUGEN’s meters are incredible, so I decided to check them out. I started using the NUGEN plug-ins and, right off the bat, they did exactly what I needed. So, I just kept using them.”

 

Ideally suited for both mixing and mastering situations, NUGEN’s Producer software provides Wee with a collection of highly flexible award-winning cross-platform plug-ins designed to increase the quality and efficiency of his productions. “The Producer software has been incredibly useful for me,” he adds. “I love the Stereoizer; it’s my go to plug-in that I use on all my mixes and checks. It allows me to control all the low-end and make sure that a recording doesn’t get too wobbly or crazy. I can even make the high-end feel wider and more exciting. It works really well and is very intuitive.The Visualizer tool included in the bundle is also excellent as its meters are tremendous in helping me see what I’m doing.”
